Landscape Photography Utilizing Your Digital SLR Camera
There are numerous variables that go towards fantastic landscape photography. Here are a few points to think about.
Lens Using an ultra wide angle lens is normal, in order to pack us much of a scene as possible into the picture. However, it's worth experimenting with a telephoto lens too.
Composition Pay attention to the rule of thirds, i.e. break the image down into a nine square grid, then place any lines in the picture, or focal points, along the lines of the grid.
Focal/interest points Placing trees a man, or a building in the foreground can give a focal point and add a good sense of scale to an image.
Some landscape that is light photographers never shoot during the daytime, just at dusk and dawn when life can be struck by the light into a landscape. It's not just the reds and pinks of sunrises and sunsets that could create play, but a scene can be warmed by the gold light of a low sun and create astonishing textures and patterns thanks to its low angle. Similarly, dark heavens, mist, thunderous clouds and storms can be more exciting to work with than a sunny day or a beautiful sunset.

Depth of field When using an SLR, or a digital SLR, combine a slow shutter speed with a small aperture to ensure that your photograph has sharp focus up to the very edges. For this you'll need to make sure your camera is steady as any handshake can make blur. The obvious solution is a tripod or should you not have one attempt to find something on which to rest the camera.
Exposure Because the sky is generally very vivid along with the ground not so, this presents exposure dilemmas to all cameras. Then using a graduated filter will help even out the brightness if you're able to.
Place Walk across the location to locate the best place from which to take a photo. Time spent preparing is never time wasted, particularly when you locate a more interesting point of view to shoot from. Roam about, get or scale a tree to find that fascinating vantage point.

Setting Shooting in black and white can create some dramatic landscape pictures. If you and shooting film have two cameras, you may simply change cameras to the one loaded with black and white film. Alternatively, with a digital SLR camera, it's simple convert it to monochrome in Photoshop afterwards.
Sky In most landscape shots, either the foreground or the sky will reign. Place it in the upper third, if the sky isn't particularly striking. Conversely, if the sky is full of cloud shapes and interesting colours, put the horizon in the bottom third.
Movement Few landscapes are genuinely still as we might envision. Fowl flying through clouds blowing, the sky, water running and waves in the sea are all instances of potential motion in landscape shots. Comprising motion can add drama and focal points to a photograph, even though it's going to mean you will probably have to employ a longer shutter speed (up to a number of seconds). You would need to utilize an appropriate filter or a smaller aperture because this may mean greater exposure.
